Did you pick up anything cool this week? I almost pulled the trigger on one of the old pour 10 oz Engelhard bars but I couldn't bring myself to pay $4 per ounce over spot--at least not at today's silver prices :(

But I can console myself with my meager stack of those bars and their successors, the "pillow" type 10 ounce bars. This group is about 1/100th of what @cmanbb has!

And I was revisiting the idea of the big bullion manufacturers and their respective forays into the world of "art bars" that we've discussed recently. Reminded me of this peculiar set from Johnson Matthey. They're sometimes called the "Bill of Rights" set, or "Personal Freedoms". They're not exactly the bill of rights, but they are pretty close.

And they are about as hybrid as it gets: Not quite bullion and they're not art bars, but art...rounds?

This is my set. They seem like they're scarce, but everyone has them or has had them at one point. They seem to go from wildly popular to almost forgotten. I don't think AE has any info on them yet. Anyone else know more?
